Barack Obama, our next President

Radical jihadist Muslims only have to secure Iraq as a safe haven and bide their time to plot another attack against us.
The old adage "evil prevails when good men do nothing" is historically true.
Our leaders seem to be following the other old adage "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
Meanwhile, hopeful immigrants keep flooding their children into our borders. No one can blame them for wanting a better life, but there aren't enough jobs or money to go around.
Seems to me we've reached a tipping point.
Sure dimwit; keep repeating that same bull crap and ignoring the fact that it was your hero George W Bush who made it possible for the radicals to establish themselves in Iraq.
Your assertion that Al Qaeda will gain some kind of safe haven in Iraq demonstrates once again your abysmal ignorance. The ISIS insurgents are Sunnis while the majority sect in Iraq is Shiite as is Iran. Iran would never let them have any kind of haven in Iraq. ISIS and its Al Qaeda allies have been fighting against the Assad regime and Maliki, both Iranian allies. When push comes to shove the Iranians will use their forces to defeat these radical insurgents.
And sure dumbass, we can't afford to feed some hungry children escaping from violence and poverty but it was okay to spend upwards of a trillion dollars on an unnecessary war that destabilized an entire region and put Iran in the catbird seat.

John Boehner is ready to sue President Obama, but the House speaker may not be able to make it through the courthouse doors.

Boehner announced Wednesday that he would sue the president for his failure to “faithfully execute the laws of this country.” In the opinion of the speaker, according to a memo he circulated, Obama’s reliance on executive orders meant that he was acting with “king-like authority at the expense of the American people and their elected legislators.” As a result, Boehner said, he planned to sue the president over executive orders to be named later under the aegis of a resolution passed by the House of Representatives.

But Boehner may not be able to do so. According to Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of the University of California, Irvine Law School, the speaker of the House does not have the ability to sue the president in this situation, even if Congress says he does. Chemerinsky says “standing,” the doctrine that allows a person to file a lawsuit in federal court by demonstrating that real harm has been caused to them, is defined by the Constitution. As a result, even if Congress passes a law, or in this case a resolution, which only requires approval by the House, it will not be binding on federal courts, as the Constitution trumps any law, let alone a resolution, and does not give members of Congress the ability to sue if they cannot prove real harm.

Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, said there were no issues with standing. Other Republican representatives echoed that position, including Rep. Charles Boustany of Louisiana, who called Boehner’s proposed suit “an outstanding move.” Conservative Rep. Steve King of Iowa added,“This is something that I’ve looked at and worked towards for a long time.”

Democrats, of course, were more skeptical. Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut called Boehner’s plan “ludicrous” and an example of an unproductive partisan Congress trying to obstruct Obama further. Surprisingly, some Republicans also spoke out against Boehner. Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, who is also a lawyer, echoed Chemerinsky’s concerns and suggested to The Daily Beast that Congress may have problems with the “standing” doctrine if it tries to press claims over Obama’s executive orders in the courts. Even if the courts hear the case, she noted, they may decide it’s a “political question” and thus out of their jurisdiction.

It’s still unclear what executive orders Boehner might file suit to overturn.

The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the powers of the presidency Thursday, ruling decisively that President Obama violated the Constitution by going around the Senate to name key labor and financial watchdogs.

Resolving a longstanding battle between the two other branches of government, the justices declared invalid key "recess appointments" made by Obama in 2012.

But the majority opinion by Justice Stephen Breyer did not go further and strike down most other methods by which presidents fill key jobs when the Senate is unavailable.

The Supreme Court has limited a president’s power to make temporary appointments to fill high-level government jobs.
The court said Thursday that President Barack Obama exceeded his authority when he invoked the Constitution’s provision on recess appointments to fill slots on the National Labor Relations Board in 2012.
The justices said in their first-ever consideration of the Constitution’s recess appointments clause that Congress gets to decide when it is in recess and that there was no recess when Obama acted. The president said he made the appointments in the face of Republican refusal to allow the NLRB to function.

Hmm, so the board has been illegally making decisions since then?
it only adds to lawlessness of this president. I like the Headline:
BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court unanimously rejects Obama recess appointments

The Supreme Court dropped a huge bomb on the Obama administration, unanimously rebuking the President for arrogating to himself the determination of when Congress is in session for the purpose of making recess appointments.

*How about that Constitutional law student Obama? don't release his grades. It is not necessary, he no doubt had failed his courses.

Bi-polar disorders have their advantages. It qualifies one to receive Social Security Disability in the Obama Jobless Economy. The only non-low paying retail job career path (other than increased employment caddying at golf courses and planning Moochelle' and Entourage's many luxury vacations).

GOPers Cringe as McDaniel Rages About Black Dems Voting for Cochran
National Republican leaders trying to appeal to non-white voters are cringing over Senate candidate Chris McDaniel's complaints that Democrats — most of whom are black in Mississippi — voted in the state's GOP Senate runoff and helped six-term incumbent Thad Cochran capture the party nomination.
"The more the tea party complains about how black voters vote for Republicans, I think they look racist and stupid," said John Feehery, a GOP consultant in Washington. "We're trying to get black voters. Now that one of our candidates got black voters, we should be happy about it."
Nearly 377,000 people voted in Tuesday's runoff in Mississippi, and Cochran received nearly 6,800 votes more than tea party-backed McDaniel.
"There is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual, about a Republican primary that's decided by liberal Democrats," McDaniel said to a roar from supporters on election night in Hattiesburg. On Wednesday, he still refused to concede and vowed instead to investigate vote patterns for "irregularities."
Turnout was up significantly from a three-person primary on June 3, when McDaniel had finished about 1,400 votes ahead of Cochran but nobody received a majority to win.
Importantly, turnout in Mississippi's majority-black counties grew by 43 percent from June 3 to the runoff, while in majority-white counties, it grew 17 percent.
When reporters in Washington asked Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., if Cochran's appeal to Democratic voters might have a negative impact on the GOP, Wicker responded with a laugh.
"Broadening the base of the party? Asking more Mississippians to participate in the ballot that's going to determine the next senator? No, I don't think there's anything wrong with that," he said.

Do you think the blacks are finally getting off the democrat plantation? wasn't there something about democrats won't let the blacks vote pamphlet? the truth set them free?

Not so scooter, the illegal appointments made by Obama were null and void by SCOTUS because the Senate WAS NOT IN RECESS.

Keep up it Dems. We all know everyone loves the IRS and they are very fond of agents who abuse their powers. So fond that 76% of those polled think a special prosecutor should be appointed.
So you are against IRS employees from alerting possible tax evasion cases?
